    1789 Is where it's at: At Tea Party GOP!

    According to Jefferson, even: It made better sense to make an independent commentary!

    "The "establishment of religion" clause of the First Amendment means at least this: neither a state nor the Federal Government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. Neither can force nor influence a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion. No person can be punished for entertaining [p16] or professing religious beliefs or disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-attendance. No tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions, whatever they may be called, or whatever form they may adopt to teach or practice religion. Neither a state nor the Federal Government can, openly or secretly, participate in the affairs of any religious organizations or groups, and vice versa. In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect "a wall of separation between church and State." Reynolds v. United States, supra, at 164."

    The Supreme Court , 1947, actually concluded that Jefferson, who was there at the time, had a clear grasp of the meaning of the Establishment Clause in Amendment One. It may have understood about Amendment Two!

    DeFence Don't matter in Amendment Two(?)
